Strike a Light!



Should the great fire of London become again lit?



In the blink of an eye all gone.

Smouldering remnants.

All Britain’s yesterday’s destroyed.

Gone in a puff of green smoke.

A world of tourism gone in a flash.

Powers that be, think of the cash!

Loyal fire people out on strike.

Spent as matches, if you like!


Even the great fires of anywhere.

Firefighters all out on strike.

Support these souls of bravery.

Stand side by side in strength.

Stand in solidarity.

Far and wide.

Our nation great

No choices left.

Loss of life.

Our nation maybe falls again.


This poem is in support of the Fire and rescue service.

Particularly in the U.K but also worldwide for the amazing work they do!
